O.B.T (Odin's Bear Trap)

About: HOLY HELL, look at me, I'm a cat ! I plan on building some kind of ball machine "soon", I just need a half term break to start as well as needing to organise all of my parts (somewhere around 7000). If so...

This bear trap is pressure sensitive and doesn't require any special procedure or trigger to make it work, you just push the orange connectors down with either your fingers or your foot. One major flaw would be that if you put the wrong kind of bands on the teeth will either go underneath or won't set properly.

V1.0 Basic trap with rubber bands in the way of the foot.
V1.3 Put the rubber bands under the main grey rod to stop it from getting in the way.
V1.5 Changed the teeth so that they interlock.
V1.9 Changed the grey rods to red rods to make it more compact.


Step 1: Making the Side Rings and Frame

Does what it says in the title.

Step 2: The Centre Piece

You really don't need a description.

Step 3: Teeth and Connection


Step 4: Rubberband and Usage

This is where it becomes annoying with the flaw.
To use the trap:
1) Place on ground
2) Pull teeth apart and pull them back until they don't shut. ie. when the band is around horizontal.
3) Wait for very stupid creature to walk into it.

When the orange connectors are pushed down, the teeth spring up and shut.

    Which language is it? English right, so we must have the right language you just have some different knock-off version

    or you could say you're English because you were born in England or Welsh if you're born in Wales. Think all you want but the language we speak is english, you speak AE or whatever you want to call it.

     actually it depends on your country, you are probably british, in america its center. same goes for color and colour
